Renate Reiner

Renate 2024

When I was 17 years old, I accepted the gift of salvation. A few months later, I was baptized and became a member of Evangel Baptist Church in Taylor, Michigan. I immediately felt the touch of God in my life to missionary work and set out to BBC to prepare for that and graduated in May of 1987.

Doug and I were married the previous year and we went on to serve together in Brazil for 28 years. In 2016 Doug accepted a position at the Baptist Mid-Missions office in Cleveland, OH. Shortly after their return, Doug was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The Lord took him home a year later.

During our years together I served as wife and mother, BMM northeast regional secretary, ESL teacher, curriculum coordinator, seminar teacher and received a Master of Education degree from Clarks Summit University.

Since 2017 I have been editor for Sunday School curriculum at the Editora Batista Regular, making trips to Brazil twice a year for training, seminars and conferences. Curriculum production shut down recently due to lack of funds. The Baptist Seminary in the Cariri region of Brazil contacted me about administering distance learning courses.

Teaching and speaking at conferences continue to be the majority of ministry opportunities. More recently I wrote a book in Portuguese that has been published in Brazil. I'm currently writing the English version. I've also been able to write some articles for BMM.
